Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't download pics to my computer...

When I plug the camera into my computer to download the pictures, it tells me either that it "can't find the device" or "the device is busy, try again later". I have taken the batteries and the memory card out - neither have resolved the problem. What can I do?

Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

I can't download pics from my hp photosmart M415 camera to my hp laptop, only vides are importing but not single pics. What should I do?


Apparently whatever program you're using to download is set to download only videos, not pictures.The best way to download pictures and videos from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures and videos from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo/video cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Hi, I sure hope you guys can help me out! I am trying to download some pics from my computer onto the 4GB memory card in my Canon Powershot A460, but the camera won't let me. The reason I'm doing...


Sorry, no. The camera will let you read the card to transfer pictures to a computer, but it will not let you write to the card to transfer pictures the other way around.

You can buy a card reader that plugs into the USB slot on your computer. Despite the name, a card reader will also let you write to the card. Once the card is plugged in, it will appear as another hard drive.

The card reader will also be a better way to download pictures from your camera. It's likely to be faster and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Stoplight shows even though all pics have been downloaded


Do you happen to be on a Mac when you downloaded the photos? If so, make sure to empty the trash (while still having the camera plugged in) after you delete them.
